Putting away Easter things yesterday and I was thinking about what wreath I was going to make or make better for spring. I decided this pretty wreath made from artificial roses that looks like paper climbing roses (I had on hand), was just what I wanted but it was not substantial enough for the place out front where I put my wreaths. My local craft/import store has been having the most beautiful curly willow flat wreaths that are meant to add wonderfulness to by adding another wreath,etc., but they have been out for weeks so I purchased this twig wreath and think it turned out just fine.
 Way simple - all you will need is the two wreaths, some ribbon and some pipe cleaners.  I use pipe cleaners all the time in the place of wire - so much easier to use, comes in all colors and so much kinder to your fingers.
Just attach the two wreaths together using the pipe cleaners and then hang the wreath and then add the ribbon with the pipe cleaner. You don't have to do the ribbon that way but my experience has told me that nine times out of ten if you apply the ribbon on a flat surface and then hang the wreath you will need to re-do the ribbon.
After making the big bow (and cutting a swallow tail at the ends) I added strings of coordinating ribbon to hang down. I attached the bow with a pink pipe cleaner.
